How can I make people see music?

I collaborated closely with the artist, Groovycosta, to understand his creative process and try to mimic it through mine.

​

The video is pending release (any minute now!), so I designed a promotional poster using shots from the clip to represent the overall colour of the track.

The Process

Brief

Self-generated brief to challenge myself to visualise sound in more detail.

Investigation

Some basic collection of visual references and styles that looked how the music sounded to me.

Concept

Layering. I wanted to layer the animation in a similar way to how the track was 'built.'

Creation of clips

I built short 3D abstract clips (Cinema 4D) to represent different moods and rhythms in the track.

Collage

Then I created a montage in After Effects and making use of blend modes and effects to build layers and atmosphere.

Timeline

I organised the collage into ambient sections to represent the changing moods in the track.
